Failure To Diagnose / Delayed Diagnoses
People should be able to go to a doctor and receive proper medical treatment for their injuries, but far too often medical conditions are not diagnosed or are misdiagnosed. One misread test or botched exam can lead to a lifetime of pain and suffering for victimized patients and their families.
The capable attorneys of Wood & Carlton, P.C., help patients and their families find answers and seek compensation when a doctor’s failure to diagnose a serious condition results in serious injury or death in Mississippi and western Tennessee. Contact us today for a free consultation.
Fighting For Victims Of Failures To Diagnose And Delayed Diagnoses
A failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a serious medical condition or life-threatening disease can result in severe medical complications or even the wrongful death of a loved one.
Patients and their families are often left to wonder how such a terrible mistake could have happened and if anything could have been done to prevent it. Failure to diagnose is not, in itself, necessarily cause enough for a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit. There must be clear negligence involved.
Uncovering evidence of medical negligence can be difficult. You cannot count on the doctors or the hospital to give you honest answers regarding a suspected mistake in diagnosing a serious condition, such as:
- Lung, skin, breast or colon cancer
- Heart attack or heart disease
- Stroke or pulmonary embolism
- Cataracts or blindness related to undiagnosed diabetes
The team at Wood & Carlton, P.C., has the skill, experience and access to independent medical experts necessary to investigate these cases and uncover evidence such as botched mammograms, failure to document symptoms, failure to take a complete family medical history, radiological errors, or other negligence leading to delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis.
